's economy. when you divided it out it was about $400,000 per job. the problem with a government stimulus is you pick the winners and losers. with this stimulus that i'm talking about, a free market stimulus, you simply leave the money in the hands of those who earned it. so the customers have actually picked out the successful people, the ones they choose to buy products from. those people get more money. like i met a young man, young african-american man who has his own restaurant. his first question is, do you have any tax breaks for me for my business? that's what this would do. it would help people who are already in business and trying. >> i don't have to tell you, senator, that republicans have a steep hill to climb in inner city neighborhoods. in the city of detroit in november, 97% of detroit voters supported president obama. 2% voted for romney. the black unemployment rate nationally is still 12.5%. and right now president obama is calling out the gop for what he says is your party's refusal to extend long-term unemployment benefits. take a look at what he said this week. >> for

families more vulnerable to the anxiety of today's economy than a broken health care system. so we took up the fight because we believe in america nobody should have to worry about going broke because someone and their family got sick. we believe we are a better country than a country where we allow every day 14,000 americans to lose their health care coverage or wherever i year tens of thousands of americans die because they don't have health care. we felt we were better than that, that is why we took this on. [ applause ] >> and, that's what the government lost a little bit over the last couple of months and our focus rightly had to shift for its working 24/7 to fix the website healthcare.gov for the new marketplace. and today the website is working well for the vast majority of users. more pop up and when we do we'll fix those too. but what we also know is after just the first month, despite the problems in the rollout, about half a million people across the country are poised to gain health care january 1st, for the very first time, we know that. half a million people.

the economy is going to do this year and next ahead of the election. >> yeah. i think the likelihood is that the economy will continue to grow at a 2% to 2.5% late next year. that's decent, but it's not stellar. given all they have said about reducing the deficit over the next few years, it leaves room for cutting taxes. i think what the uk needs is a rebalancing towards investment and exports. the government realizes this and i think as a consequence it's unlikely to do things to throw additional fuel on the fire of consumption. >> do you think the government is doing enough? are you expecting any measures, say, on planning tomorrow from the troika? would that have helped? we had construction pmis this week very strong, rising like a phoenix out of the ashes. but many suppliers saying the supply side of that market is still very, very underperforming. >> yeah. i mean, when it comes to the supply side of the uk housing market, it really is down to things like change, having a look at the green belt legislation, trying to, you know, incentivize local authorities to watch the yen gauge

given potential. it is because we know that when women and girl participate in economies, economic growth is greater than would be without them. where women and girls are given the chance to be educated and to get the healthcare they deserve to have, we know that societies benefit. where women and girls can participate in peace making and peace building as full members of society trying to resolve conflicts, we know that resolution is more likely to be sustained. it's a great honor for me to have this award. but it is a reminder of how much more we have yet ahead of us to accomplish. to make sure that tom's dream, tom's life, the examples of the award recipients with us and those unable to come, bring out in each of us our own commitments to what we will do to further the cause of human rights, universal human rights for every man, woman, boy and girl in the world. it is certainly what tom would expect us to do to hold high his ideals and by accepting this award and knowing that tom would not let me off the hook, otherwise, it is something that i will continue to be committed to i
